Concentration Pills For Studying?

46 posts in this topic

or any other type of treatment...
OK.

I always get tired by the end of the scholar year and that is bad for me cause i can't concentrate myself in classes and my grades go worse...

Last year I had an excellent Final grade till one month before we finish the year...

and in only one month i received very bad grades and all the effort from the beginning went to the trash.

I know that it was because i felt tired and sleepy all day, although i slept enough and had a good breakfast.

So I was wondering...

Does anyone take any pills for concentration?

Which one? (scientific name)

Or do you do any special thing like exercises for your concentration?

Tell Us!!

THANK YOU!!

If you have trouble w/ concentration, you're just uninterested and it's just about useless to study under that condition; still better than nothing though- unless you build stress while studying 'cause you know you studied badly. No one, not even Asian parents can really force you to do something boring. One thing that could help is to take those breaks when you need them, which may seem like all the time. And studying late at night is probably better, with absolutely no drive to go do other "fun" activities (vid. games, exercise, practice something, draw, w/e...) as I've found- the key to that is just stay awake and yeah, automatic better concentration than during the daytime.

Try those six hour or five hour energy drinks. They make you focus better and are especially goods for days that you have to cram

Find someone with A.D.D (Attention Deficit Disorder) and ask them to give you a Ritalin pill or Adderall pill or whatever drug he/she is taking. You'd be concentrating in no time.

Theres riddlin which is proven to work, obviously. But for a more healthier and non-prescribed choice a lot of people I've heard recommend fish oil tablets, which is really really good for your health and everything to begin with and it also boosts concentration, I my cousin takes it and he says it helps him concentrate a lot, its just like taking supplements too which wouldn't hurt the average person in regular doses.

concentration drugs are prescribed and do not take them from someone who ACTUALLY needs it, if you don't need it and you're takin it, it will screw up your brain/kill you cus you don't need that chemical. if you really think you need it, go see a psychologist and see if they say you need it.

Drink orange juice. It's considered to be brain juice! I always have it before a test and it helps if I studied well enough. Try that out.

Don't drink energy drinks. Or at the very least, don't use it before the test day. Energy drinks always make me tired >_>

energy drinks was necessarily when I have a final approaching. Like you I cannot concentrate, i get dizzy and sleepy.

However with the help of energy drinks I was more "alive". If you want some tips for doing oral presentation, i take about 2 shot of vodka.

This i the ease myself and calm myself down. Mixed both and you will get wild.
